Barbara Jean Oglesby, a loving, caring mother and grandmother, awoke in the arms of her Lord and Savior on June 3, 2013, at the age of 74.

Jean was born in Tyler on April 23, 1939, to the late T.A. Moore and Gladys Hobbs Moore. Her working years were spent as a letter carrier for the U.S. Postal Service, but above all, she never missed the activities of her grandchildren and was always there for them.

Jean also enjoyed cooking and loved her Lord with all her heart. She was a member of Tyler Metro Church where she worshipped faithfully.

She was preceded in death by her siblings, Alvis Ray Moore and Donna Butler.

Survivors include her children, Renee Deese and husband Lynn, of Troup, Gary Oglesby, of Tyler, and Trent Oglesby, of Tyler; grandchildren, Misty Deese, Cody Deese and fiancée Ashley Davis, Dakota Deese, Austin Oglesby; and one great-grandchild on the way. She was also survived by a special aunt, Viola Miller.

A service of celebration for Jean's life will be held at Tyler Metro Church on Thursday, June 6, 2013, at 1 p.m. with Dr. Jerry Phelps and the Rev. Gary Oglesby officiating. Private burial will be in Bascom Cemetery under direction of Burks Walker Tippit Funeral Directors, Tyler.

Pallbearers will be Cody Deese, Dakota Deese, Austin Oglesby, Dustin Newland, Matt Hester and David Cheatham.

The family will receive friends from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at Burks Walker Tippit.

If desired, memorials may be made to Angel Care Hospice, 702 Fair Park Drive, Suite 102, Henderson, 75654.
